Downstream solar company Conergy has designed and installed a 145 kWp solar power system for one of the most iconic landmarks in Singapore’s skyline, Marina Bay Sands, one of Asia’s leading destinations for business, leisure and entertainment.

This marks the first commercial-scale rooftop installation for Conergy in Singapore, and the highest location in the country that the company has fitted panels on thus far, at 200m above sea level.

With solar panels lining the roofs of the iconic Sands SkyPark and covering an area of 880 sqm, Marina Bay Sands will be able to reduce carbon emissions by 70 tons every year. The 536 solar panels can generate 187 megawatt-hours of energy per year.

Key features of the Marina Bay Sands solar rooftop installation include Conergy PE 270 mono noir PV modules from JA Solar and roof-top racking solutions from Mounting Systems GmbH.

Conergy collaborated with Asiatic Engineering Pte Ltd for the local installation and construction of this rooftop system.

Alexander Lenz, Conergy CEO, said: “This project is a milestone for Conergy in Singapore, as it is our first commercial-scale rooftop installation in the country, as well as the highest at 200m above sea level. We are very pleased to work with Marina Bay Sands, a leader in sustainability within the hospitality industry, on this significant achievement for such an iconic landmark that is recognized the world over.”
